Like most my age, my life has been destroyed by those that prefer to hire H-1B’s INSTEAD of Americans.
I have applied numerous times with rackspace, USAA and the Department of Veteran Affairs for jobs that I am very capable of, yet they NEVER interview us and all you have to do is drive down Fredericksburg road in San Antonio outside USAA to see why.
From 2003 till 2010 I used to submit over 100 applications per day, every day, and I very seldom, if ever, was interviewed.
So I have gave up applying for jobs that I could do in my sleep because it is very obvious that the deck is stacked against me in this era where they find every excuse they can so that they do not have to hire an American and what really saddens me is two of these organizations are supposedly for veterans, of which I am one.
Lets review the info step by step that is happening in this area.
First lets look at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Notice how they contract the work out and then let these people work from communist china using privately owned equipment?
As a veteran who is quite capable of doing the software jobs from developer to project manager, I take offense with this, and if you would like to review this information in more detail, please click on the following link.
And then ask yourself, why are we letting government agencies contract their work out to companies that refuse to hire Americans and prefer to hire non-immigrant guest workers?
And then lets look at USAA
A reader sent me this which is pretty well self explanatory.
I worked at USAA for 2 years. Part of their service desk. When I got there, the service desk was being run by Kforce, Kforce got fired, another company came in. That company? The infamous HCL. Not only was management all Indians, but they cheated and abused the law. We didn’t paid 1.5x overtime, they labeled us as “Flexible work hours” employees and paid us on a sliding 0.5x OT. When that got too dangerous as lawyers started making inquiries they quit paying us OT on our paychecks an started handing out $10 an hour gift cards.That’s IF you worked OT at their request.It get’s better.My group was the internal service desk, we did software fix for employees. HCL paid us salaried, but wanted to move us to hourly. They couldn’t. So instead of hiring under that contract with USAA that forced the salaries, they subcontracted for nearly 40% LESS Pay to do the same job.It get’s better.The internal HARDWARE teams, that installed and maintained employees PC’s? All were USAA Employees. Were, I say because HCL came in, took over that desk and forced all the USAA Employees to convert to the HCL or quit. Less pay, less benefits.It get’s better.Most of USAA’s IT Programming and support? Chennai India. If you come to San Antonio, take a walk along Fredricksburg road. Guess what? Little India, all USAA workers.It get’s better.HCL is contracted to say pay each of these H1B Visa employees say.. 45k a year, but they only get 25K, and are told if they say anything, they’ll lose their visa’s.HCL Management pockets the difference.USAA knows about this, they don’t care.The ALL AMERICAN, Pro-US MILITARY, VETERAN (Of which I am) FInancial and Insurance agency… is a major employer of not Veterans, or Americans…
Now I realize why I have been unable to be hired there even though I am a Navy Veteran.
Again, why are we letting our companies contract their work out to companies that discriminate against Americans in America?
As of today, I am going to start applying again for those jobs like systems analyst, .net developer, and project manager.
And if I find out that those companies in the greater Austin and San Antonio area are violating the following, you can bet your ass that I am going to contact these people as I have had enough after nearly 14 years of very unsteady work because of the H-1B SCAM.

Justice Department Cautions Employers Seeking H-1B Visas Not to Discriminate Against U.S. Workers
The Justice Department cautioned employers petitioning for H-1B visas not to discriminate against U.S. workers. The warning came as the federal government began accepting employers’ H-1B visa petitions for the next fiscal year. The H-1B visa program allows companies in the United States to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations such as science and information technology.
The anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) generally prohibits employers from discriminating against U.S. workers because of their citizenship or national origin in hiring, firing and recruiting. Employers violate the INA if they have a discriminatory hiring preference that favors H-1B visa holders over U.S. workers.
“The Justice Department will not tolerate employers misusing the H-1B visa process to discriminate against U.S. workers,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Tom Wheeler of the Civil Rights Division. “U.S. workers should not be placed in a disfavored status, and the department is wholeheartedly committed to investigating and vigorously prosecuting these claims.”
The division’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER), formerly known as the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA. The statute prohibits, among other things, citizenship, immigration status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices; retaliation and intimidation.

Applicants or employees who believe they were subjected to discrimination based on their citizenship, immigration status, or national origin in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral, should contact IER’s worker hotline for assistance.
